*Ok, not quite.
But this is still pretty great. Sterogum has compiled a HUGE list of Ben Gibbard covers. You’ll find Ben in all his various incarnations: DCFC, solo, Postal Service, and even duets with his wife Zooey Deschanel. (awww…cute.)
I haven’t listened to all of them yet, its a pretty daunting list, but I’ve listened to quite a few. There are some fantastic songs but most seem to be just ok. There are a few that aren’t any good. Don’t ask me to list which are which. I’d rather you explore and find out yourself…you might be surprised. (i.e. Avril Lavigne’s “Complicated”)

p.s. I actually really like DCFC’s new single “You Are a Tourist.” At the very least it made me super nostalgic and I found myself listening to Transatlanticism and The Photo Album. Great albums.
